Rob was very responsive to all questions and concerns I had throughout the process. I was treated with respect and as a human being. You might expect this, but with the court's complete disregard to your life outside the courtroom, you will come to appreciate having someone who treats you well in the process. Rob also did a good job of explaining the process from start to finish and my options along the way. He listened to all of my questions and encouraged me to share anything that was concerning me. Rob's willingness to meet me where I was and not ask me to make unnecessary travel was very helpful. I would highly recommend him, but hope I never have to use his services again.

I am extremely happy that I hired Mr. Andretz to represent me in my OWI case. He knows the court system in and out and is a great lawyer due to his background and schooling, as well as his experience and ability to interact with the client as a down-to-earth person. He made the entire process less stressful for me and always kept me up-to-date on what was happening and what I needed to do to make the process go more smoothly for me. Mr. Andretz is very professional when it comes to handling the actual case but is also friendly and likes to know about the client he is representing so he can learn about them and present them in the best light when it comes time for any court appearances. I contacted Barone Defense Firm after I received the police report for my OWI and Mr. Andretz handled the case from there. He informed me of my options during the process, he and I discussed my ideas of things I could do to be proactive concerning my alcohol use to prove that I wanted to help myself while going through the court process. He is an excellent lawyer not only because of his experience and willingness to help his clients, but also as a person. I would recommend him to anyone seeking advice or a lawyer for any type of OWI related offense. I am truly grateful I was able to have him as my lawyer because the end result was much better than I had anticipated. He did his job, and he did it quite well!

Robert went above and beyond to inform me of all options throughout my case. From start to finish, he would meet in person or talk by phone to answer all questions I had regarding my trial. Definitely a worthwhile investment in an OWI case.

Rob is an excellent lawyer. He is always very well prepared and respected in the courts that I have practiced with him. I consider him to be a go-to DUI defense attorney. He is very knowledgeable in DUI defense and is always willing to share information and tactics with his fellow attorneys. I strongly endorse Rob for his advocacy, professionalism, and legal knowledge.

Having seen first hand how Rob puts the time and care into every client needed to obtain results that make a difference in his clients' lives, I fully endorse him for any criminal matter, especially offenses involved alcohol or drugs. If you're facing criminal charges, you will need an attorney who not only knows the law at the highest level, but also will genuinely care about how the consequences might affect your life. Rob will certainly provide that service.
